Momotaro Lightweight Moleskin Polka Dot B.D Shirts

Here we have a new classic button down shirt from Momotaro! A remix of traditional polka dot patterns and super soft moleskin fabric!

For those who have never tried moleskin fabric before, we guarantee you will be impressed! The surface of the fabric is super soft to the touch and has a slightly furry feeling. On the reverse side it has a silky smooth texture, this balance of texture and softness is perfect for your summer time fit! To make such a fabric, Momotaro have to use very old machinery in order to achieve the perfect texture. With wear, the overdyed colour will age to a soft vintage look!

From the irregular tones of colour on each button to the exposed selvage on the side hem, Momotaro’s meticulous details are always on point! If you are looking for a versatile, slim fitted button down for the upcoming season, this a great option for you!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
